Show one product only on Magento Home Page


Have recently installed JM Tube, fantastic template!!

Want to add some code to display product(s) in template view format to the home page. (see example attached)

Have entered base code on home page CMS:

{{block type="catalog/product_view" product_id="169" template="catalog/product/view.phtml"}}

Any Magento experts willing to share some knowledge on this problem?

Sorry, will try and give more detail;

On the home page of my store I would like to display just one product that I choose from any category.

This product will become my daily special and customers can purchase directly from home page.

I can display products in category using list view using the code: {{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="35" template=catalog/product/list.phtml}} (see file attachment)

I would like to display only one product in same format as product view so my home page will look like the image attached (end result.jpg)

Hope this is more clear

Many thanks

After installing extension above I now get full product view when I navigate to category, which is good. I wonder how I can now display this category page or product on the home page as it appears on category page?

So my home page now looks exactly like image attached.

Can I maybe purchase an extension to do this?

Thanks again
